Last night Scott and I headed to the store to stock up on food. I went down one aisle, Scott went down another and said he’d be right back. Ten minutes later I was looking up and down the aisles trying to find him since I was ready to go. I finally found him talking with an employee named Tom. Tom works demos at the store. He had just finished doing a demo on ice cream sundaes. He and Scott had been talking about Honey Buns and Rice Krispie Treats and the best deals, and Tom offered Scott his leftovers from his demo day. Tom gave us four large beautiful peaches, an entire container of vanilla yogurt, and chocolate syrup. He offered for us to come back some more days at the end of his shift to get more too. Thanks to Tom we had a delicious breakfast of cantaloupe, peaches, and vanilla yogurt.
The first item on our agenda was a hike up Sugarloaf Mountain. Trip Advisor contributors had said it would take about an hour. There was the option to take the difficult or easy path. As advised, we took the difficult path up and the easy path on the way down. It took us about twelve minutes to hike up. We spent some time looking around, exploring some more paths, and enjoying the gentleman playing guitar on the rocks.
After Sugarloaf Mountain we headed to Presque Isle. We hiked around for a bit and then stumbled upon a group jumping off the rock into the water.
This part of Lake Superior looked very calm today, so we put the canoe in.
We found some interesting little caves scattered along the bottom of the rock. One of the caves was large enough to canoe into.
Inside the cave continued the creative striations on the rocks.
The layers of rock were almost as incredible as the green rocks below in the water.
After the canoe ride Scott decided he needed to join the group of people jumping off the rock into the water.
Next stop, Scott went for a mountain bike ride on the Marquette North Trail.
After some dinner, the last stop for the night was a bike ride with our camp neighbor back to Presque Isle to Sunset Point.
